Cuba is enchanting and fascinating, not only for its beauties of nature, as someone might think but for the people themselves. They are the real “monument of Cuba”. Their spirit and lifestyle are what makes this place magic. Nevertheless an indisputable lack of wealth and economic backwardness, Cubans are a proud, fierce and resilient population, with one of the highest percentage of literacy worldwide. Cuba is a great multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds.
